Tottenham and Arsenal alerted to availability of Real Madrid star Lucas Vasquez

Tottenham and Arsenal have been approached to see if they have any interest in signing winger Lucas Vasquez from Real Madrid.

The 29-year-old has rejected the new deal on offer at the Bernabeu — a three-year contract with a 10 per cent reduction in wages.

And after several rounds of meetings between Real bigwigs and his agents, both parties are now making alternative plans.

Real are considering a move for Levante’s Jorge De Frutos, with Vasquez instructing his representatives to find him a deal in the Premier League.

The player worked under Jose Mourinho at Real and would love to link up with his old boss again.

And the appeal of living in London means the Gunners have also been contacted.

The only issue for Vasquez is that he wants a four-year contract with a Champions League club — and neither Spurs nor Arsenal will be able to offer him the latter without a major change in fortunes in the next two months.

Vasquez has been sparsely used by Zinedine Zidane this season, and when he has played it has been as a wing-back or right-winger.

Zidane is understood to have told Real’s directors to sort out the player’s future one way or the other.

Vasquez has firmly put the ball in Los Blancos’ court but stating publicly that his future depends on the club rather than himself.

But if Real fail to improve the terms on offer then he will be a free agent from the summer.
